Dhanushkodi, Tamil NaduTop 10 Remote Beaches

Since the sea is shallow here, one can walk into Bay of Bengal and witness the colourful corals, fishes, seaweeds, star fishes and sea cucumber etc. However one is forewarned from venturing into Indian Ocean as it is extremely violent. The Dhanushkodi railway line running from Pamban Station was destroyed in the 1964 cyclone. Before the 1964 cyclone, Dhanushkodi was a flourishing tourist and pilgrimage town. There were many ferry services between Dhanushkodi and Talaimannar of Ceylon, transporting travellers and goods across the sea. There were hotels, textile shops and dharmashalas catering to these pilgrims and travellers. The Railway line to Dhanushkodi – which did not touch Rameswaram then − went directly from Mandapam to Dhanushkodi. Dhanushkodi in those days had a railway station, a small railway hospital, primary schools, a post office, customs and port offices etc. But cyclone of 1964 converted Dhanushkodi into a ghost city. Today reaching Dhanushkodi itself is no less than an adventure. It is an experience of lifetime. Dhanushkodi has to be a day-long visit and staying options are all at Rameshwaram.

Swimming is not safe as the surface is of slipping sand, but can take bath near the rocky area. Best part of this beach is that it is less crowded. Located at 18 kms distance from Vizag it is beside Dolphin's Nose. Deep blue color merged with the color of the beach to green coconut trees in the sea shore. Lovely and soothing.

Some of the bloodiest Anglo-French battles were said to be fought on these sands. This virgin beach, with its serene surroundings is an ideal place to laze away your day. Since the beach is not very popular yet, it is isolated and peaceful. It is not a commercial beach popular with a few sunbathers and surfers. There are no stalls or shacks you can find here. It is located off the East Coast road. It looks somewhat like a private beach, as the approach road is quite narrow. The road can easily be missed, as no one expects that road to lead to a beach.

So if you are interesting in surfing or bathing, this place is a way better option than Paradise Beach.
